Abstract

LOPES, José et al. An ecological study of the mosquito Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti L. and associated culicifauna in an urban area of southern Brazil. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1993, vol.27, n.5, pp. 326-333. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101993000500002.

Some aspects of the ecology of eleven species of Culicidae that were found breeding in recipients in an urban area of Southern Brazil are presented. A great variety of recipients were listed as efficient breeding sites. Apparently Aedes aegypti has been recently introduced into the region and was limited to two areas of the city. Culex quinquefasciatus, Cx. coronator, Ae. aegypti, Ae. fluviatilis e Limatus durhamii were the predominant species.
